Just as an aside. I am always amazed at some of the Ads on QL of parents looking for child minders. Funny that they would trust their most valuable asset to a complete stranger being paid very little money.
may her soul rest in peace.. well my opinion is parents do have responsibility as being parents , along with they do have responsibility to be kind & supportive to there servants too. there are so much cases we hear about injustice with poor maids & house workers. curse comes itself to you when you are unhuman & unfair to anyone.
Not the kids please.... imagine the fear and pain that infant would have gone through. may almighty give you his love and grace.
Rest in peace. Earlier days were better when mothers were at home to take care of kids.Kids dont need money they need care n love first. :(
Poor little soul, Rest In Peace.
problem is now a days people hire maids just because they can afford them, doesnt matter both parents are working or not
Leaving innocent lives at the mercy of housemaids - the bane of working parents...
SO SAD. POOR LITTLE SOUL. RIP.
Poor little angel. May she rest in peace.
